Blizzard Sending Out Level 100 Boosts to Inactive Accounts

Recommended Posts

We noticed that Blizzard is sending out Level 100 Character Boosts to inactive accounts as part of the game's 15th Anniversary.

It appears that only inactive accounts currently qualify for the boost.

The EU account, which received the Gift and email, has been unsubscribed from the game since June 23, 2018. On the other hand, our active US account received nothing.

The boost can be claimed until October 30, 2019

The safest bet is to check your Battle.net Desktop App or your inbox for an email from Blizzard.

The email subject is quite clear it is to attract inactive accounts  - Here’s to 15 Years, Xxxx! Return to Azeroth with a Free Level 100 Character Boost.

Fake info. The boosts have only been given to inactive accounts in order to encourage them to return.

Imagine trying to give players who quit the game "incentive" to come back. LUL c'mon Blizz gotta think and use that big brain of yours and consider why they left in the first place.

People stop playing a game for multiple reasons.  Some people leave because of real life garbage like a GF/BF that doesn't like them playing so much.  Maybe the are mad at game balance.  Maybe they had a kid.  Maybe they changed jobs and can't make the time.

And then 5 years later their Real Life crap is sorted and they now have free time.  They get an email saying that they get a free 100 boost if they give WoW another shot.

Not everyone leaves WoW for BS reasons like Store Mounts or other garbage streamers b!tch about.

A BF/GF that doesn't respect their significant other's need to have personal time a few hours a week is super unhealthy and is the definition of real life garbage.  A significant other that wants to occupy all of your time is a very unhealthy situation... and its also pretty common.

I got it... Not sure why it's 100 instead of 110 but whatever. Blizzard if you want me to come back how about a nice sale on a BFA + sub package?

 

Oh and it's a little confusing. It's just the gift that expires, right? Once you consume the gift and have a boost waiting on your account it doesn't expire?

Anybody could list a number of reasons why they don't play anymore even with an optimistic attitude with A, B and C. Point being if someone really wanted to come back I am confident to say at the very least that they would on their own accord. Now I am not shaming on blizzard or anything like that *insert some generalization here* I am just saying its rather silly and it is. I guess more power to the player if they take handouts right its just a game 🤣

It's a nice incentive no matter the reason an ex-player whom is willing to return and try the game.  However the boost is just Lv.100 and a lot of the current content to attempt is at Lv.120.  Even if the token was used to create an alt to save for a rainy day it kinda defeats the purpose....and can be viewed as nothing by clickbait to resub and endure the next 20 levels of xp, ap, and rep grinding with the carrot on a stick with the use of Benthic gear to work towards for the time being.  And of course some of the catch mechanics that are current will help ease some of this but doesn't help a person that is starting from ground zero of BFA.

However if the token is Lv.110 this may get a few players to retry and attempt what is going on in the current patch. and determine if the game is or is not worth subbing to again.   More than likely several of these players may simply by pass this offer and jump directly into Classic once it is fully released.

They are doing it because promotions do work that's why companies do them; It is Marketing 101.

Saying a company that has a promotion is being silly especially when the promotion costs them nothing more than a Forum Post, a Launcher Graphic and a mass mailer to former subs.  That's maybe 1 or 2 days work for an unpaid intern.  If even 0.01% of the former 30 million WoW players from the last 15 years comes back for a few months its very worth it.

You really don't know what you are talking about regarding Marketing.

I really think you're taking this out of context. It is silly. Its 2019 and while their approach is reasonable to bring back players to play a game that's been out for literally 15 years give or take as you say "WoW players from the last 15 years comes back for a few months its very worth it" idk what this even means other than the writing on the wall. As for your marketing comment idk what that has to do with anything. This service is being GIVEN and "OFFERED" to the players in hopes that they "stay". If you want to take this to a even bigger mountain than that. Go to twitch and check the views on WoW in-comparison to a game like Fortnite. You'd be surprised how much more fun people have playing something that doesn't require work ~ its a dieing trend and the only game to beat WoW is ironically itself WoW Classic lol - If in-fact you do not believe me you really you should take the look at the forums sometime and try to asses why people are leaving instead of coming back. Then try to tell me that i dont know anything about marketing when people are bored. They don't want to grind out reputations day in and day out you might as well go to work and call it WoW from the constant grind. But if we level this all out at the end of the day its the individuals choice. its entertainment and a video game just like I said previously.

Maybe the inactive time requirement is much higher. I last played in 2014 and got it. But I wont play. Not because I hate on WoW like most people, just because I had enough of it for a lifetime.

      Ny'alotha raid testing continues this week with The Prophet Skitra on Mythic difficulty and Halls of Devotion, the second LFR wing of the raid.
      Blizzard (Source)
      On Friday, December 13th, we will be continuing our raid tests in Ny’alotha, the Waking City. After the test is complete we will make the second wing of Looking for Raid available for the weekend.
      Friday, December 13th
      The Prophet Skitra - Mythic Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      Halls of Devotion - Looking for Raid Ny’alotha, the Waking City
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      It's time for Cataclysm Timewalking this week and players level 86 and above are eligible to enter the Firelands Timewalking raid for the very first time.
      Firelands, the new Timewalking raid, has been added to the game in Patch 8.2.5, and this week, it's the first time players can enter it and defeat the seven bosses for loot.
      You can find item level 395 loot in Timewalking dungeons and item level 415 loot dropping in the new raid. Completing 5 Timewalking dungeons for the weekly quest rewards Cache of Palace Treasures, a chest with one piece of gear from Normal difficulty The Eternal Palace.
      Don't forget that Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a chance to drop from any Timewalking dungeon boss as Personal Loot and save up your Timewarped Badges for expensive mounts like Beastlord's Irontusk, Beastlord's Warwolf, Bridle of the Ironbound Wraithcharger, Yu'lei, Daughter of Jade, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Gather your staunchest allies and head into the Firelands raid dungeon to take on the elemental lord Ragnaros and his cohorts—and take on six dungeons from Deathwing’s era— during Cataclysm Timewalking, running December 10–17.
      The Firelands is the molten domain forged by the titans to house Ragnaros and his wayward minions. Following Deathwing’s emergence into Azeroth, Ragnaros and his servants surged onto the slopes of Mount Hyjal before being driven back by the sacred mountain’s valiant defenders. Now Ragnaros is rallying his loyalists to defend the Firelands from Azeroth’s champions.
      When: The Firelands raid is available throughout the Cataclysm Timewalking event.
      Difficulty: The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder.
      Minimum Level: Players level 86 and above are eligible to participate.
      Bosses: (7) Beth’tilac, Lord Rhyolith, Alysrazor, Shannox, Baleroc, the Gatekeeper, Majordomo Staghelm, Ragnaros
      During Cataclysm Timewalking, you can assemble a raid group of between 1 and 30 players to step into the molten domain of Ragnaros. Don’t have a regular group? The Group Finder (I) can help. Create your own group in the Premade Groups section or search for like-minded adventurers.
      DUNGEONS IN CATACLYSM TIMEWALKING
      Grim Batol
      Don’t be fooled by Grim Batol’s humble exterior; many of this mountain fortress’s desecrated chambers are buried deep in the Twilight Highlands. Once the stronghold of the Wildhammer dwarves, and later seized by orcs as a prison for Alexstrasza, the city is now in the clutches of the Twilight’s Hammer cult.
      The Stonecore
      Within the Temple of Earth, locked in the heart of Deepholm, lies the Stonecore. It was inside these caverns that the Twilight’s Hammer toiled over Deathwing, hammering elementium plates to the Dragon Aspect’s body in an attempt to hold his tormented form together. With his renewal complete, Deathwing ascended into Azeroth, shattering the World Pillar and destabilizing the region of Deepholm.
      Lost City of theTol’vir
      The Lost City of the Tol’vir is the stronghold of the Neferset, a faction of the cat-like tol’vir who swore fealty to Deathwing in exchange for a cure to the curse of flesh, which had turned their rocky hides to soft skin. With the affliction expunged, the tol’vir have rebelled against the benefactor, although they remain irrevocably twisted and hostile due to the dark pact they made.
      The Vortex Pinnacle
      The Vortex Pinnacle exists within the elemental plane of Skywall. Its elegant structures, crowned with bronze and gold, sit atop platforms bridged by pure air. Yet behind its exterior beauty, the pinnacle harbors Neferset tol’vir, as well as Al’Akir the Windlord’s merciless elemental legions. As long as the barrier between Skywall and Azeroth remains open, terror will rain down on Uldum from the skies.
      Throne of the Tides
      Deep within the Abyssal Maw’s fathomless expanses lies the Throne of the Tides. From here, the great elemental lord Neptulon the Tidehunter has surveyed and protected his aquatic domain for ages. He now faces his greatest challenge as a force of serpentine naga and malefic faceless ones threaten to depose him, leaving his realm and its secrets ripe for the plundering.
      End Time
      One of an infinite number of potential outcomes, this timeway depicts the desolate future of Azeroth should Deathwing fail to be stopped. Nozdormu has identified a powerful anomaly that exists in this moment and bars access to the past—and hope of retrieving the Demon Soul. The powerful creature from out of time lives alone amidst the time-twisted echoes of the past.
      JUST THE FACTS
      Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your regular level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Stonecore, Slabhide could drop the Reins of the Vitreous Stone Drake mount for you.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and Chronicler Toopa in Boralus have a quest for you. You can also start the quest from within the Adventure Guide (Shift- J).
      Quest Requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons.
      Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty The Eternal Palace.
      EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

      The remasters and upscales keep on coming, as we have the Burning Crusade's intro cinematic in up to 8K resolution now!
      While BC is my favorite expansion ever, I was never a fan of the cinematic, as it's just a collection of various clips that don't have much of anything to do with Illidan's narration, until the very end. Obviously the two new races deserved screen time, but we didn't even get to see the Dranei's ship(s) in there, and then it's straight on to random battle clips. It obviously takes its cue from the Vanilla cinematic, as far as the clips go, but where it worked for Vanilla, which was simply setting the stage for the world itself, it falls a little flat here. But at least it does end on a high note, with the green horned one making a proper appearance.

      We have more Ivan Kuzkin goodness for you today, as he's put together a highlight reel of his 2019 Arena cinematic footage!
      We'll also be taking a look at his previous PvP videos, including a really old one from 4 years ago which is particularly impressive (and longer). Here's "The Rhythm of Chaos":
      And here's two earlier video trailers for the 2019 spring and fall seasons:
       
      Impressive stuff as always. Which cinematic would you wish IKedit would remaster next? Or should he go back to his earlier class series or other original machinimas?
